Sun Safety for the Entire Family
July is UV Safety Month! Everybody needs some sun exposure to produce vitamin D (which helps calcium absorption for stronger and healthier bones). But unprotected exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause damage to the skin, eyes, and immune system. It can also cause cancer. There are other contributing factors such as heredity and environment. But sunburn and excessive UV light exposure do damage the skin. This damage can lead to skin cancer or premature skin aging (photoaging).
Click here to learn more about how you can protect yourself and your family from the sun’s harmful rays. And watch this short video: 5 quick tips for Sun Safety. As always, you can talk to your oncology nurse navigators for more information and guidance—call them at 844-446-6229, or reach out by email email@example.com.
